      I Loooooove eating plain grapefruits, peeled like oranges. They're a lot harder to peel and section but its worth it.

      Also, protip: have you ever tried freezing the grapefuit sections after you peel them? It totally changes the texture of the fruit and really really tastes like an amazing fresh healthy popsicle.

          Didn't really mean to kick off a string describing how nutritional gaps causes eating more of the bad 'foods'... or even non-foods from what y'all have written, but it's a neat discussion!

          Reading these makes me realize that my hoarding of brown sugar, salt and graham crackers w/ a tub of frosting (at different times) in my bedroom during my teen years was a real symptom of malnutrition. We had real butter and cheese in the fridge, and Mom would cook with them, but we were severely chastised if we ever went for more than she'd doled out -- "because we'd had plenty put into the meal".

          I had periodic cravings for paper, lots of ice, even spent a couple of months where I'd spread Elmer's glue thinly on my hand, let it dry and eat the slightly salty results....ewwww!
          Oh crikey, this reminds me of something ...

          When I was about 13, I went through a dreadful phase of eating coffee creamer straight out of a jar. I used to go to my grandmother's and when she was doing something else, I would grab a spoon and just dive in. I ate the whole lot eventually, and it was a catering-sized jar.

          When I look back, that was about the time my mum went "low-fat" in our house. I think I was just craving fat.

            • CornSugar.com - Learn about HFCS which is simply a corn sugar at CornSugar.com
              I saw an ad for this the other day on TV. I thought at first that it was just a ploy to get people to eat more sugar, but then I saw this on the site:

              “Rather than ban it [high fructose corn syrup] from your diet, you’re better off cutting back on sugar from all sources. That includes honey, maple syrup, brown sugar, agave syrup, and fruit-juice concentrate, which are found in many so-called healthy treats.”

                Haha. I would like to hear her explanation of why cutting back on sugar leaves you "better off" than banning it and eating whole foods instead.

                • Last night on the biggest loser they actually mentioned that a 20oz soda has the equivelent of 17 teaspoons of sugar. It was good to see them saying that sugar is bad instead of just badmouthing fat.

                    I did appreciate that fact. But then laughed at the trainer's reaction when they went to eat at the BBQ joint. Seriously? The only healthy thing you're allowed to order is salad and lean turkey breast? And I couldn't help but notice that it looked like everyone was drinking pop (yes, I say pop, not soda) there and also when that contestant visited the Subway restaurant with her family member.

                    I probably laugh at more moments on that show than a person should. I mean, there are great stories of people taking back control of their lives, but still lots of CW misinformation.

                      I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.

                      You're never going to get to the top of the stairs if you don't walk up them.

                        I feel like those are wayyyy too solid after freezing. Much harder than a normal popsicle

                          That scene reminded me that I need to fire up the smoker this weekend and do a rack or two of ribs..

                            I laugh a lot at the product placement ads in the middle of the show. My wife and I are like "I wonder who is sponsoring this week" lol

                            • This is absolutely, atrociously, horrifically disgusting. It is smart to avoid ANY food "product" with the words "better than" or "smart" on it. This is an absolute tragedy:



                              Ingredients: Water, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, isolated soy protein, maltodextrin, tofu, non-dairy lactic acid, sugar, locust bean, guar and carrageenan gums, salt, vegetable mono and diglycerides, and potassium sorbate (added as a preservative).

                              Compare that to the ingredients of normal cream cheese:

                              Ingredients: PASTEURIZED NONFAT MILK AND MILKFAT, CHEESE CULTURE, WHEY PROTEIN CONCENTRATE, SALT, GUAR GUM, CAROB BEAN GUM.

                              How the HELL is that "better than" anything? Hydrogenated PUFA oil, water, processed tofu, thickeners and sugar...versus milk, cultures and thickener. Man, that pisses me off. Trader Joe's has a "better than peanut butter", too. The ingredients on that make me dry heave. Just awful.
                              Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

                                Oh we only freeze them for a few hours. It can vary depending on the freezer, but basically just enough to get the ice crystals to form, not enough to become a rock (also, totally weird, but while I was typing this a coworker *just* came around and offered me frozen grapefruit. CREEPY!)

                                Zomg I used to eat this. I remember I liked it at the time. Blarg. Well, I had a lot of vegan friends in college introducing me to their weird foods.
